Bad Grandpa: Review

See also

Unlike previous jackass presentations, this film had a story, sort-of. The bad Grandpa Irving Zisman (Johnny Knoxville), is charged with the transport of his 8-year-old grandson, Billy (Jackson Nicoll ) back to his real father, after having traveled from Nebraska to North Carolina to get the child.

Yeah. This could have been funny, if the old manner of jackassery had taken place, rather than an actual movie-like-thing.

We were somehow able to watch the whole thing. But, we're sad about it.

Somehow, this stinker has been nominated for an Oscar and some other award.

Perhaps, this show could have been called;

Stupid Grandpa

Abusive Grandpa

"Saggy," or "Sacky" from the strip-bar scenes

Mentally Challenged Grandpa

Grandpa Who Lived Longer Than Grandma

Yeah. No. I just wouldn't, if I were you.


Billy: Grandpa, you sharted!

Grandpa: I thought she'd never die.

Grandpa: It's alright. She's already dead.
